As told by Karen Jenkins, recruitment and progression officer, Nacro Sandwell.

Mike joined our Study Programme in Sandwell and then progressed on to a work placement at Barnardo’s.

Securing this placement is testament not only to his hard work but also to the efforts of staff at our Sandwell office who have worked hard to develop an excellent working relationship with Barnardo’s. Mike did extremely well on his placement which led to him being offered a place on Barnardo’s level 2 retail and customer services training scheme.

This is a wonderful achievement for Mike and will undoubtedly increase his employability opportunities in the future. It is also a good example of how Nacro’s relationships with other organisations continue to open doors for our learners.
